Just talked with one of the women who heard the gunshots and tried to help out... Ameir tells me her friend took some of the victims to the hospital when an ambulance didn't show up -- but the age of the teen victim has stuck with her. pic.twitter.com/V9WcwYXskj— Matthew Smith (@MattSmithWXYZ) May 24, 2019
